Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) of $313.50 is available to every UCPS student
Because we are qualified as a CEP district for our overall Free/Reduced percentage, every student enrolled in Union County Public Schools, regardless of income levels, can receive the P-EBT amount of $313.50.
Currently enrolled students who are receiving SNAP benefits on an active EBT card will automatically will receive additional funds for P-EBT on their card. The guardian and/or parent does not need to do anything.
Currently enrolled students who are receiving Medicaid or KTAP benefits based on income levels below the NSLP income guidelines, or who are in foster care, will automatically receive a P-EBT card in the mail with instructions. The guardian and/or parent does not need to do anything.
Students who do not qualify based on automatic participation
should complete a simple online P-EBT application: https://benefind.ky.gov/.
Student name, address, date of birth and Statewide Student Identification (SSID) are required. You can find your child's SSID number in the Infinite Campus Parent Portal under the "Today" tab.
Applications open for 30 days beginning June 1. Once the applicant receives confirmation the student had access to free or reduced-price lunch, the household will be mailed a P-EBT card. (Amount cannot be split or transferred and may be reduced if student eligibility began after March 1.)
